The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) has developed a free mobile app for consumers called My Dietary Supplements (MyDS). MyDS gives you:

  • An easy way to keep track of the vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other products you take—right in the palm of your hand.
  • Access to science-based, reliable information on dietary supplements.
  • General information about ODS—who we are and what we do.

Simply enter the names and amounts of your dietary supplements, and they'll be stored for your use anytime, anywhere—for example, when seeing your doctor or shopping. With MyDS you also can email your personal list of dietary supplements to yourself or to your health care providers and print it out for reference.
